Parents and Teachers: Please note we are making some internal changes to the site. As a result, the Great American Multiplication Challenge, Spellerz!, Burnside's Billions and couple of other games will not show statistics or return save codes for the next few days. They will be playable, but no data will be saved. They should be fully functional again by the end of the week. As always, please support this site by following me on FACEBOOK or TWITTER.

Saratoga, New York

   
 
 
 

Shared by the United States and Canada, Niagara Falls is the most voluminous waterfall in North America, and one of the world’s most spectacular sights. The word”Niagara” is said to mean “Thunder of Waters” in Iroquois language. The falls attract millions of visitors each year and are also a valuable source of hydroelectric power. Niagara Falls is actually comprised of three different falls: Horseshoe Falls, American Falls, and the smaller Bridal Veil Falls. Visitors to the falls can ride The Maid of the Mist, a boat that travels in back of Horsehoe Falls, where they get sprayed with mist generated from the falling water.
